know,od morning, president obama had such an opportunity for the african americans to come out as a true leader, an american because his mother was white, to actually be and i am soder disappointed. ben carson believes in our constitution and our bill of rights. he believes in the american people and the spirit. and withpart of bush mr. obama now, you know, it is like they are trying to cover up the whole benghazi thing, the bombing -- why is homeland security wanting to buy 270 million bullets? why? there is so much murder and mayhem going on and basically it is the gags. look at chicago. a normal u.s. american is trying to protect their family and he is not allowed to have a gun. but all the gangs and drug dealers are allowed to have a gun. the same thing the earlier caller said. in ohio, people are not allowed to have them to protect themselves. i wish -- we just need to pray for our country because the agenda of they have got and the way they changing oure it, educational system, we are learning more about communism except about how wonderful america is -- he had a wonderful opp

. ♪ >> michael: in the past week we have seen how flexible president obama's red line in syria can be, kind of like a twizler. the white house has stepped back from an immediate course of action. the president said he needed more time to make his case. >> obama: i have to make sure i have the facts. and if we end up rushing to judgment without hard effective evidence, then we can find ourselves in the position where we can't mobilize the international community to support what we do. >> michael: getting more hard evidence night not be such a bad idea. anybody remember the phantom weapons of mass destruction george w. bush used to justify invading iraq? well joining me is who served as senior advisor to ambassador richard holbrooke, the special representative to afghanistan and pakistan. he is currently dean of the school of advanced international studies at johns hopkins university and is the author of the new book "the dispensable nation: american foreign policy in retreat". i even have a copy right here. welcome into "the war room," vali nasr. it does seem like a spectacularly good read g

martin richard. he was killed in the blast. now, look to the man in the white cap. that's the suspect, tzaernaev. also the bomb circled on the right. >>> president obama is marking the 100th day of his second term. at a press sweeping today he defended fbi's previous investigation of one of the suspects in the boston bombing. >> they not only investigated the older brother, they interviewed the older brother. they concluded that there were no signs that he was engaging in extremist activity. >> the president rejected criticism that the fbi didn't do enough after the russian government asked to investigate tamerlan. the review is under way. >>> the if the u.s. can confirm the syrian government used chemical weapons against its own people. regulators suspect the regime used gas against rebel forces. the president and administration have said no action will be taken until there is conclusive proof chemical weapons were used. >>> new information tonight at the case against the man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to three officials including the president. in an affidavit the fbi sa

going to change. and president obama can't do that. the one thing that i think maureen makes a good point about, though, it's worth the white house paying attention to this, is that the president should never say i've done everything i can do. because nobody ever has. right? there's always more to do, there's always more to try and you can never be seen as kind of throwing up your hands and saying, well, it's all on them. and i'm done. and i think that that's kind of the -- the one sort of maybe even stylistic mistake that the president made in the press conference or he's making now, is that -- he needs to give people more that they can do, and he needs to keep doing more himself, and the republicans and stephanie is absolutely right, mitch mcconnell bears more of this blame than the president does but we ought to just keep talking about it. we ought to just keep pushing at it, and i think the president can never say it's -- you know, it's up to you guys now. he always has to have some new activity that he and other people can do to keep trying. >> dean, what about this point, you'

shrugged it off last night. but the pentagon did tell the white house it would take 75,000 troops to secure those weapons. >> let's bring in aaron david miller, distinguished scholar at the wilson center. >>> was it a mistake for president obama to draw a red line like this? >> you're a president. you're asked over the course of the last year what happens if syrians deploy chemical weapons. you're going to say something cig niche cant. use the word game-changer. use the word red line. the problem is it turned pink very quickly. if the gap between rhetoric and action is so large that it swallows up with remains of american credibility, the president has a significant problem. and, second, the reality is asaad has introduced these weapons incrementally. even surface-to-surface missiles. now he's doing precisely the same thing with cw. >> what is cw? >> chemical weapons. >> chemical weapons. >> okay. >> sorry. >>> in an effort to impose some kind of cost. we're coming out of the two longest wars in american history where the standard for victory was never could we win, but when could we

, you've got to make sure you've got the facts. >>> despite president obama's reluctance to outline any specific actions his administration might make, "the washington post" is reporting that -- the post quotes a senior white house official say that even as the administration is moving forward with caution, quote, we are clearly on an upward trajectory. we've moved over to assistance that has a direct military purpose. though the white house is reportly edging toward this move for several months, it would represent a significant shift with you now is richard engel. my first questioned is this approach seems to be two-pronged, moving forward very carefully. on the other side they seem to be testing the waters for greater engagement, specifically military, on the issue. >> reporter: in terms of the caution, i think that has to do with the red line issue, the chemical weapons, there is a lot of reports and rumors about chemical weapons. there's something of a panic among the opposition in syria regarding the use. an anecdotal story, just the day before yesterday there were reports of anoth
